Water Spout Spins Across Ocean Near Wollongong, New South Wales

A waterspout was seen off the coast of Bulli, New South Wales, on July 12 as stormy conditions were forecast for the region.

“Looks like it’s trying to suck that ship up out of the water,” Wayne Jennings can be heard saying in this video, which he filmed overlooking the ocean near Wollongong.

A low-pressure system off the east coast of Australia was expected to bring windy and wet weather to areas including the Illawarra, where this video was filmed, for the coming week. Credit: Wayne Jennings via Storyful
